The Challenges

The Kawailoa Wind project is a 69 megawatt wind farm on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. The project is located on Kamehameha Schools’ Kawailoa Plantation lands, about 5 miles northeast of Haleiwa town on the north shore. The Project is a part of Kamehameha Schools’ North Shore Plan and was developed with extensive input from the local community. The wind farm consists of thirty 2.3 MW Siemens wind turbine generators, and is the first project in the United States utilizing the Siemens turbines on 95 meter towers.  Kawailoa now produces enough clean, renewable energy to power about 14,500 Oahu homes, meeting as much as 5-10% of the island’s electrical load.
